    Those are high-level errors that cannot be troubleshot easily - run LicensingDiag.ps1 from Activation troubleshooting

    We need to see the full Event log errors.

    Have you tried re-entering the COA sticker key in Settings -> Activation -> Change Product Key? If so what error code does it spit out?

    PS If you are not comfortable with Powershell run the exe from there - it won't give as much info but more than we have now.

    I tried entering the original COA sticker key, but remained not activated.....decided to do a fresh install of windows 10 pro and see if it activates.....I couldnít get the install to proceed as it said it needed to be GPT, So converted to GPT using mini tools partition wizard FREE.....then rebooted and all I got was a flashing cursor top left of a black screen......so decided to reboot and try installing W10, low and behold, it installed completely, seems to be a lot more things to decide on during the install process, but all went ok and activated immediately on its own......so I assume thatís good news.....now going to restore a Macrium reflect image and if not activated, may well have to start again......with a list of installed programs from Revo uninstaller ( be good if three was an option to export a program list to a text file.....but a screenshot and print out will suffice, will reinstall programs as needed, with a MR image back up before each install.......will update when MR image restored...

    - - - Updated - - -

    the Key from the sticker on my PC came with an installation W7 disk unfortuantely after the image restore I have an unactivated PC again.....would prefer to fix it, if not will start over...

    The PC accepted my W7 Key but got this after it whirred for a while

    My PC suddenly says its not activated-unable-activate-windows-2020-03-16-23.02.54.png

    AS REQUESTED i HOPE !!!

    I put some XXXs where key info was, hope that was ok....

    If you installed W10 Pro and skipped entering a key when asked, then it activated from a digital licence stored on the activation servers and linked to the hardware ID of the PC.

    ... unfortuantely after the image restore I have an unactivated PC again.....would prefer to fix it, if not will start over...

    You have shown above that the PC has a digital licence for W10 Pro. What happens if you change the installed key to the generic W10 Pro key?

    Did you enter a key when you clean installed Pro? If not, it would have installed using the generic key. That can only activate if there's an existing digital licence for the PC.

    What is the current installed key? If it's not the generic key, then installing the generic key should activate from the digital licence just as your clean install did. That the theory, anyway. If it doesn't work you still have your image to restore, so it's worth a try.

    Any hardware changes (OEM license)?

    Key for key - version for version : Was the Win 10 upgrade the same version as the Win 7 license (Home > Home, Pro > Pro)?

    His errors indicate that the files containing the license information are corrupted. Messing with product keys is not going to help.

    Yeh, kind of agree here. And using the image restore is only restoring those corrupted files over the top of the fresh install that did work (always a problem with image restores, you never know what was in the old system).

    Complete re-install, including all software.

    Yes both PRO . . .

    - - - Updated - - -

    When I did the clean install, I ticked “don’t have a key” so the digital license on MS servers is valid for my machine.....is there anyone on this forum that knows how I can reset / repair / clean the corrupt activation files.....can’t be impossible, for someone who knows how......will save me so much time, which I do t have being a 24/7 carer.....fingers crossed help is out there
